    you know what, go for cd decks. and buy good ones, take the technic option, because what you spend on you're equipment you make back on buying mp3's.that's what i'd do if i was starting out now.

    but that said, if you love wax you'll spend the money on it.

    i've got a pair of numark tt200's, had them for like the past 3 years or something and never had a problem with them, but if you've got the money then go for technics 1210's mate and you'll be sorted!

    I've had a basic Numark DM950 which was really basic but did the job. Then I had a Behringer VMX100 but I wore the faders on this one, but it was second hand. And now I'm using a Reloop RMX-30 which has lasted me a while and had no problems with it so far. It depends how much you want to spend? A typical basic mixer is around £40-£60. What about something like this? http://www.htfr.com/more-info/MR114591 Two channels, kill switches, etc.

    I'm guessing thats around £150? You'll get a nice mixer for that. Try Numark, Behringer or Stanton they all make pretty good ones in my opinion.

    Wadup holmes,

    Well me being a vinyl junkie my answer's pretty obvious, when I started dj:ing I worked my whole summer vacation on a construction yard and bought 2x twelve hundreds and a stanton mixer. Allthou I love drum'n'bass I dig mix hiphop and do turntablism also so for me it straight vinyl binniz from the start. Now many needles and mixers later I'm still rinsin' with the twelves but I'm getting one cd deck aswell so. It's when you wanna add some real ug dnb flavour to your mixtapes with tunes that only get released digitally.

    SAFE

    I got some shit decks when i was about 15, never got into it because they where so fucking hard to mix on. About 3 years later, after working away for a while i had some money i put towards some 1210's. Best thing i ever did!!!! It was so much easyer to mix i learnt how to beat match within a month i think and once i got that i was hooked!!! Anyway the thing i'm trying to say is i defo think its worth saving, you could try ebay and the thing about vinyl mixing is it can be fun looking for the tunes you love too!!!!! Hope this helps!

    Yeah Numark TT's are fine for when youre on a budget, got mine 6 years ago, they're not very special, and would be no good for scratching, but I've never had a problem with them the whole time I've had them - they're pretty good for the money...

    Mixers wise I say go for vestax, they're really solidly put together, and all the faders are replaceable at not much cost, the build quality is reflected in the price, but you can save a packet by getting one 2nd hand off ebay, and in the long run you'll save money - all my mates who don't use vestax need to replace the whole thing every 18 months...
